Economy of the common good instead of predatory capitalism
The cherry tree forms a natural system from which countless living creatures benefit throughout the year. For Erwin Thoma, it is the ideal model to call for a reversal of our competitive economy.
The crises of the present hold the chance to fundamentally change our society. Away from the pursuit of ever more growth, and toward a communal economy. Erwin Thoma uses a functioning ecosystem to illustrate how this can succeed: intelligence and education are decentralized, recyclable materials are reinvested in the cycle, and phases of weakness are overcome collectively. An urgent call to action in the interest of the community instead of accumulating more and more money and power.
